Well, I don't want to be a soldier mama, I don't want to die
Well, I don't want to be a sailor mama, I don't want to fly
Well, I don't want to be a failure mama, I don't want to cry
Well, I don't want to be a soldier mama, I don't want to die
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

Well, I don't want to be a rich man mama, I don't want to cry
